[Spirit Island]
Dahan

As replacements of the cities for Spirit Island, I choose 'BG114 Small Village' from Irregular Miniture's 2mm range.

The models were way too big for the Koplow Casino Stacking Poker Chips they will be mounted on, so I cut back the base and removed the outermost building and trees.

Still, the round hut was too far out, so I cut it off, shortened the space between the square and round hut, and glued it back in.

Here are all the converted models.

Towns

As replacements of the towns for Spirit Island, I choose 'BG105 Courtyard Farm' from Irregular Miniture's 2mm range.

The models nearly fit the Koplow Casino Stacking Poker Chips they will be mounted on, I hust had to clip back the base a bit and cut away the two trees at the corner of the barn.

Here are all the models.

Cities

As replacements of the cities for Spirit Island, I choose 'BG114 Small Village' from Irregular Miniture's 2mm range.

The whole model is too large for the Koplow Casino Stacking Poker Chips the models will be mounted on, so I started by cutting it down.

As there was still some space on the chip, I cut the two connected houses from the off-cut and re-glued them to the street.

All the models converted.

Explorers

For Christman I got Spirit Island - well, at least theoretically. As of today, the parcel is still on its way to us. I played the game with a friend in Decembre and it immediately went to my Christmas Wishlist.

While I really like the game, the components are mostly not really to my liking, especially because they are so different. The invader buildings for example are plastic, the Dahan's (the indigenous people) huts are from wood, etc.

Also, the quality and detail of the plastic models is okayisch, but when you are a wargamer and miniature collector they are not so great. Here you can see Norman's game who infected me in full swing.

So I went looking for 'real' substitute figures, and decided for Tin Soldier UK's CON6 - ARQUEBUSIER Conquistadores. I first thought of the ones with the pikes, as they would be quite similar to the plastic minis from the game, but they are very tall which would make storage much more difficult.

There are three different types of models, I decided to use the two with the typical rimmed helmets, this with the pointed helmets go to the lead pile.
